There should be a nut on the other side of the housing of the tightening lever that you can tighten. Turn the lever to unlock the leg then start with 1/8 th turns of the nut to tighten, then turn the lever to lock the leg. Do this until you get the desired locking.

Yes you can. But I saw that your Manfrotto is possible to buy for 50 Euro.
Anyway the part you need is the full leg called CODE:
R785,203B
you can see the datasheet on the spare part site of Manfrotto:

3rd shaft lost inside 2nd shaft


Yup.Close all leggs up,tape the other 2 so they don't come out,then shake the tripod like your shaking a thermometer to get the mercury down.That lost leg should slide out easily.Once out,place a small hose clamp on each of the final legs just above the rubber tip and this will NEVER happen again.

The leg clamp on my tripod is broken i need to find a replacement


They were not made to be serviced. They were made to be disposable essentially, but you might contact the folks at B&H to see if they may have a solution.

Otherwise depending how it broke, it might be able to be cemented, or reconfigured to accept a different type of clamp. I had a no name type of tripod that required some caredul filing to restore a lip on a clamp so it would lock after the original lip snapped off.

Reassembling telescopic sections for a 676B monopod


Each leg lock has a leg locking lever and a screw that hold the clamp assembly tight to the leg. Unlock the leg lock lever, loosen the screw above it that holds the clamp tight to the leg. The legs should fit into each other sice each leg is slightly larger or smaller then then next one. Slide the clamps in the approprite places and tighten the screw enough to hold the clamp assembly tight, but do not over tighten it. Over tightening will damage the 679 tubes.

I have a bogen 3011 which uses the old screw leg clamps, but I purchased the newer quick release clamps for the legs. I'm at a loss on how to install them - any help out there>


Go to:
www.bogentripodparts.com
and watch the videos. Ther is a video, not for your particular model, but should work. Essentially you remove the legs, use top half of lock for upper part then lower part for slide out smaller diameter part of leg.

Leg lock broken


Assuming you still have the female part with the treads in tact, you can do what I did. I used a hose clamp, the kind used on radiators, but larger. First, take off the lock down knob, then put the hose clamp over the broken plastic housing and mark where the knob would screw through. Then remove the hose clamp, placing it on a sturdy surface and use a 5/16 drill bit to make a hole where the lock down know will pass through. Place the hose clamp over the plastic housing, insert the knob, tighten the hose clamp (but not so much that it restricts the tripod leg from moving) and you are done! I can send you pictures of the process and the final result. It saved me from buying a new tripod! I can be e-mailed at boingsplatplop@yahoo.com if you have questions.

ART055 manfrotto pro tripod


Hey there fotoflika, I have had a similiar problem in the past and found replacement parts unavailable. My solution was to drill a small hole through the leg section, and I used a similiar size allen key to stick in the hole, effectively locking the leg in place. You could drill several holes for different extension lengths. Crude I admit, but cheaper than buying a new tripod.
